Previous Names: Route 3 Drive-In
The Plattsburgh Drive-In opened in 1948 and was the first drive-in in the Plattsburgh area. It was opened by Benjamin Hobbs who also operated indoor theatres in five north country towns. The lot on which it was located measured 500 by 700 feet. Outdoor church services were held here in addition to the movies. In 1956 a CinemaScope screen was installed.
The Adirondack Northway (Interstate 87) was built in 1966 passing a mile east of the drive-in, which led to heavy commercial development in the area.
The Plattsburgh Drive-In closed after the 1973 season.
